ELLES

Drama, Female Director(s)
Dedicated to both her husband and sons and her ever-challenging career as a journalist, Anne's life appears both fulfilling and complete. But as she begins researching an article on female college students working as prostitutes, the surprising stories of her two candid subjects stir up conflicting imagery of femininity, sexuality, and fidelity within. As her connection to the girls deepens, Anne contemplates whether the relationships she has with the men in her life are really all that different from her subjects' connections with their clients, bringing into question the seemingly stable life Anne has built for herself.

Striking a delicate balance between explicit and intimate, filmmaker Malgoska Szumowska deftly depicts the entangled female experience as it exists within the domestic sphere. In her roles as a wife, a mother, and a writer, Anne's world is both confined and blown wide open by the awakening offered in her latest work. Exquisite and engrossing as always, Juliette Binoche is radiant as the sophisticated and sexually charged Anne.
